Wrapping up a week of more of the same. Some notes:
Did you see that Stormy’s lawyer – Michael Avenatti is “exploring a run for the presidency”? He is going to Iowa with a Clinton operative (Matt Paul) to test the waters.
We predict he will find very cold waters there.
Did you see that Melania’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs had a private naturalization ceremony in New York and became U.S. citizens? They used the chain migration option that the President wants eliminated.
Do you think Democrats now wish they had reached an agreement with the administration and done away with it?
Did you see this in the WSJ today (because the MSM did not cover it)?:
The imposition of new U.S. sanctions against Moscow has roiled its markets.
The ruble shed as much as 5% against the dollar on Thursday, and stocks plunged as much as 9%.
Really? You mean the actions against Russia have hurt them?
The U.S. failed to get assurances from Turkey to free an American pastor held on disputed terrorism charges, setting the stage for new punitive steps by the Trump administration. This has rattled things. The Turkish lira lost more than 10% against the U.S. dollar as relationships falter. The fall rattled currency markets and the dollar rose to its strongest point in a year as concerns about the health of Turkey’s financial system rippled around the world.
The prosecution is about to rest in the Manafort trial. As they rest their case ask yourself, was there anything in their case tied to Trump or Russian collusion? There was none. Yet how many times did you watch or read the MSM and hear Manafort and Trump linked in the story?
What Manafort is charged with was a decade before the 2016 election and has nothing to do with the president. It’s time for Mueller to lay out his case or move on.
Get ready for Omarosa. She kicks off her book campaign on Sunday on Meet The Press. It will be two weeks of anti Trump bashing, with a week reprieve and then the Woodward book.
By the way Omarosa said she secretly taped Trump. So let’s see, she and his lawyer secretly taped him. Funny. Trump thought Obama and Comey were doing it.
Have a great weekend.
